I seem to be a bit late for this thread, but I just moved here this past week. I'm interested in hitting the climbing gym with anyone, any level. In fact, for the new climbers on this thread, its good to go with people who have experience as they can help you figure out how to make different moves. If anyone wants to climb evenings or weekends, please shoot me an email. jscolnick@gmail.com

Hi there,

I used to take some trekking through natural jungles and conquer wild mountains as well as took camping on a desolate island... in my country. However, never been taking a rock climbing before moving here.
So, please inform me if there is any plan that you guys intent to take regarding to that topic.
Waiting for your info...
Cheers

I'm keen on learning to climb. But most of the time I'll only be available on weekends. Anyone have plans and don't mind a newbie tagging along, please msg me.
